A Calendar Conversion Program
My hobbies are genealogy (family history) and software development. So, naturally I like to write software related to genealogy. One problem that genealogists run into is that historical documents sometimes give dates in calendar systems other than the modern Gregorian calendar. So, I wrote a program to convert these dates to and from Gregorian. If you are a C programmer you may want to download the source from here and incorporate it into your own programs.

History of Newton County Mississippi from 1834 to 1894
I decided to stop complaining about the lack of original genealogical source material on the Web and to do something about it. This is a book that was originally published in 1894, republished in 1964 and is now out of print. It contains hundreds of names of people that lived in the county and is a valuable resource for genealogists. I am in the process of scanning it with a flat bed scanner and using OCR (optical character recognition) software to convert it to a Web page so everyone will have access to it. I am also adding an index of all names mentioned. Hopefully it will be completely converted soon (depending on how much spare time I get to work on it).

RECOLLECTIONS
This is a reproduction of a small pamphlet published in 1934 by A. B. Amis, Sr. It describes the religious, courtship and social customs of the 1870s and 1880s in rural central Mississippi.
